Lesson: Wisdom in the Economy [Pt 9] 28 minutes long
Prv 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Prv 14:12,16:25 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. [Every solution man comes up with, to solve the problems he is faced with, is one where God, and His Word, is totally ignored.] Man wants to prove how smart he is. God, in turn shows him how foolish he is.
Psa 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
Prv 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

The Economy – The Cause of the problem
Irregardless of your being a Christian, or not, when facing a problem, a wise person will look for the cause of that problem. It does no good to attempt to correct it, if you don't know what caused it in the first place. The reason being, if you don't deal with the cause of it, it is liable to pop up again, even if you find a way to fix it.
Ex. If you have a foul odor in your house, you can always buy something to cover it up. But, wouldn't it be better to find out what is causing that odor, and remove it?? Well the same holds true for fixing the economy. If we don't deal with the cause, the problem will remain.
It is my contention, that the problem we are facing, is the result of our not following God's directions. In other words, our sin.
Using the example of the car, and the flat tire. The economy is the car, and the tires, whether you want to accept it, or not, is the Word of God. If, there are no holes in the tires, the economy can take us wherever we need to go. Disobedience to God, is like punching a hole in one of those tires. And until you patch the hole up the hole, by repenting and turning back to God, through obedience, it, the economy, will continue to be in trouble. And, at some point, nothing you do, will help it come back, and you might reach the point of destruction.
As goes the Church, so goes the economy
1Ki 3:3 -14 [Solomon asks for wisdom, and God gives him wealth, power, prestige, and, long life.]
2Chr 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Mat 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 2Sm 11:2 – 2Sm 12:14
Mat 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
The economy is like a large pie. There are two sectors [private and public]dividing that pie between them. The larger piece, one gets, leaves a smaller part for the other.
